Maybe I'm not such a crankypants  
So I haven't been able to watch sitcoms for years, and I've been feeling really angry lately (though it's been easing up a little, I think). Not much has really made me laugh.

Reading a fanfic that made passing reference to a Canadian cereal, I followed the link at the end of the story just out of curiosity. I mean, "Shreddies" sounds like a pretty dull foodstuff, don't you think?

I'm an American in New England; I'd never heard of the cereal, much less seen any promotions for it. Yet a few seconds after seeing the main page of that website, I was laughing out loud, and I couldn't stop laughing when I clicked through. Maybe it helps that I wasn't expecting anything of the kind, so it was as much surprise as anything else and my saying even this spoils much it ... or maybe it really is funny enough to overcome my moodiness. I'm not gonna complain either way; I just offer it here for anyone else who wants at least a smirk.

Heh. It's a point you have. (I still can't work out if Glenn Beck is this era's political-forum Andy Kaufman.)

The French only makes it funnier, somehow.

Just browsing a bunch of stuff and saw your comment. The Shreddies campaign is one the best advertising campaigns ever. How to make a stuffy cereal a bit more exciting - look at it from a different angle. It is a classic.

Now back to your regularly scheduled crankiness :)

Happy holidays!!!

It's one of those subtly brilliant strokes I can't help but admire, really. Hee. And happy holidays to you!
